OPEN SOURCE IN CONVERSATION: PAULINA KOROBKIEWICZ
20 MARCH – 20 MARCH 2020
An informal discussion with current Open Source artist, Paulina Korobkiewicz about her photographic practice and her exhibiting series Wall Unit.
The aesthetics of the Polish People’s Republic (1950s – late 80’s) was shaped by the existence of the Iron Curtain – the political and cultural boundary dividing Europe into two separate areas. It resulted in a shortage of common goods, including furniture. The series uses the material remains of the system to investigate how geopolitics influenced contemporary taste and aesthetics in Poland and neighbouring Lithuania.
Open Source is part of our responsive programme, offering our on and offline resources for others to use. There is no theme and no limit to number of submissions, but we encourage projects that engage with themes explored in our exhibitions. The aim of the platform is to make lesser-known artists more visible.
